I'm reading this guide that describes how to install the statistical language R on Termux. My installation journey is briefly outlined below.
I need to determine why nothing happens at Step #2 below. Anybody have an idea?
Step 1: Add the its-pointless package repository
I copy/paste the following text to Termux, hit enter, and the console spits confirmation text, and it appears everything works fine.
pkg install curl gnupg mkdir -p "$PREFIX/etc/apt/sources.list.d/" echo "deb https://its-pointless.github.io/files/ termux extras" > "$PREFIX/etc/apt/sources.list.d/pointless.list" curl "https://its-pointless.github.io/pointless.gpg" | apt-key add
Step 2: Install required .deb packages
I then copy/paste the following code block to Termux, hit Enter on the keyboard, and nothing is output to the console. It appears nothing has happened. I try to copy/paste each line individually,
pkg install r-base then
pkg install make, etc., but nothing is output to the console and nothing happens.
pkg install r-base \ make \ clang \ gcc-7 \ libgfortran \ openssl-dev \ libcurl-dev \ libicu-dev \ libxml2-dev
Step 3: Configure your compiler with its-pointless script
If I can make it this far I'll simply copy/paste the following directly into Termux.
Step 4-6: ...see the rest of the guide if you wish
So yeah, I need to figure why nothing happens at step #2 and I can't proceed any further with the install. Maybe I need to change directories at some point? Funny enough, even when I did a basic command such as
ls nothing was printed to my console. Is there some permissions I need to change?
